Slim DVD Storage Ideas

Slim DVD cases are specifically designed to be lightweight and thinner than old cases. The cases can be half as big as the full-sizes cases and even smaller, such as with TV shows and special edition DVDs. The old discs took up several inches of valuable storage space, while the slim cases take up much less room. Ideas for storing your slim DVDs include pieces that serve multiple purposes in your home.

Furniture Storage Pieces

Storage pieces made to resemble furniture pieces provide two uses in your home: as both a piece of furniture and storage. This type of storage hides your collection away from prying eyes, while still keeping the slim cases organised. A bench seat is one example, as the top of the bench lifts open for storage underneath. A media console table is another item that stores DVDs. The table features a flat surface for holding your television and many have shelves underneath for the storage of additional electronics, including a DVD player or stereo. Cabinet doors on the piece open up to reveal hidden storage inside for the slim cases. You'll even find floating shelves that hang on the wall and provide storage for displaying items on top and hiding DVDs inside. A sliding panel pulls away, to reveal the DVDs inside the shelf.

Drawer Storage

Storing your DVDs in drawers is another way to organise your collection. The thin shape of the slim DVD cases fit into a variety of drawers, including dressers and plastic storage bins with sliding drawers. Arrange the DVDs inside, with the title facing up. Every time you open the drawers, you see immediately what you have inside. It's helpful to organise the titles by genre and write the name of the genre on each drawer. When you're looking for a horror movie or a romantic comedy, you simply open the drawer with the appropriate label.

DVD Shelf Storage

Shelf storage is one of the more common ways to display DVD collections because nearly every store sells some type of display rack. Racks with slanted shelves put your slim DVDs at an angle and keep the discs from falling or sliding off the shelf. Look for DVD shelves with adjustable racks. Adjust the racks to fit CDs, books or knick-knacks on the empty shelves. Interlocking shelves, which connect together and attach to the wall, are helpful if you have a large collection of slim DVDs.
